How to fill out your VAT in Spendesk?

Update on German VAT rates - June 2020
Due to the Covid-19 crisis, the German government announced a temporary VAT cut. From July 1, 2020 until December 31, 2020, the standard rate of VAT will be reduced from 19% to 16%, and the lower band cut from 7% to 5%. We have updated those rates in Spendesk. More details. 

Spendesk allows you to manually fill out all your payments’ VAT rate. Under the "Payments" tab, click on a payment and enter the right type of VAT and its related rate.

There are 3 different types of VAT rate within your Spendesk interface:

  • - Goods and services being sold domestically are liable to VAT. Within Spendesk, you can choose between different national VAT rates depending on the nature of goods and services you purchase.
  • - Goods and services are being sold between different countries as part of the European Single Market are also liable to VAT. However, the transaction is subject to a Reverse Charge procedure which means that you may be able to manually enter the right VAT rate within Spendesk.
  • - Goods and services that are exempt from VAT are not liable to VAT. Within Spendesk, you do not need to indicate any VAT rate (e.g. books, newspaper etc.)
